As part of the full range of optical services that we provide here at Oneway Eyeglasses, we’re please to offer our City View LASIK exam. If you’re familiar with LASIK, you know that it is the revolutionary laser eye surgery that gives you greatly improved vision for good, without the risks and drawbacks that are associated with standard surgery. However, as much good as there is to say about LASIK, it may not be for everyone. And any procedure, even one done by lasers, is something that should be thought about and discussed in detail. Our eye doctor will help you with expert guidance and professional analysis of your current state of vision. You will also be able to ask any questions that you have about the procedure, how it works, and what to expect afterward.
There are many advantages to having laser eye surgery. It is highly effective for addressing all three common refractive disorders: nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Here’s how it works: the eye surgeon will reshape your cornea using the laser, reconfiguring it so that light will pass through and strike your retina closer to the center, as is the case with ideal vision. Problems with vision at various distances can be traced back to the curvature of your cornea, which allow light to instead hit your retina toward the front or the back. This leads to the familiar experience of having difficulties seeing up close, far away, or even at all distances. With your eyeglasses or contact lenses, you avoid blurry vision, squinting, and eye strain. But the point of our City View LASIK exam is to find out if you are a good candidate for ridding yourself of those symptoms with far less reliance on your corrective lenses, or even dispensing with them entirely.
About 90% of LASIK procedures are successful, and there is no pain at all. Most patients are able to see better by the next day, or even later the same day. There are no bandages and no stitches. Recovery is quite quick. So, are you ready to find out if you’re a good candidate? Call us right now and schedule our City View LASIK exam.
